We thank Dr. S. Siegel, Dr. C. Li and Dr. I. Zizak for their invaluable help in the μ-Spot X-ray diffraction studies. We thank the Mag Noi company from Kibbutz Gan Shmuel Israel, for supplying the fish. X-ray studies were conducted at the μ-Spot beamline of the BESSY II synchrotron radiation facility, which is part of the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie, and received funding from the European Community’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under grant agreement no. 226716. The research was supported by a German Research Foundation grant, within the framework of the Deutsch-Israelische Projektkooperation DIP. L.A. is the incumbent of the Dorothy and Patrick Gorman Professorial Chair of Biological Ultrastructure, and S.W. of the Dr. Trude Burchardt Professorial Chair of Structural Biology.
